CHURCHILL Square shopping centre has been evacuated.

Shoppers have shared video online which shows them being told to leave the premises in Brighton.

The evacuation took place after a pipe burst in the popular shopping centre.

A spokesperson for the centre said: "The centre has had to be closed for the source of the leak to be found and for it to be repaired.

"One of the pipes has burst. Everybody is out and the centre is closed.

"We are working to find out where the water is coming from."

The centre is expected to reopen later this afternoon.
